YORUBA EPA HEADDRESS 24, Nigeria

Photographs © Hamill Gallery

 Yoruba
Epa 24
19" high x 12" wide x 12" deep
$1500

The works from the Epa association honor deities and cultural heroes at masked festivals. The large base heads, of deceased ancestors, are treated with less naturalism than the superstructure, which depicts and honors mothers with children, warrior/hunters, animals and rulers with their entourages in impressive sculptural form.

This headdress has been judged to be authentic.
